Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Spotlight On Nature

Welcome to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a sketch challenge.

I was so excited to start playing with this sketch challenge. As soon as I saw the Spotlight On Nature bundle at OnStage my mind was made up – it is the perfect bundle for this sketch. Here is a sneak peek of a bundle in the new annual catalogue:

I used the marker-to-stamp technique to get the two colours on the flower stamp. The sentiment is from the soon to be retired Go To Greetings.
A repeat of the flower stamp on the inside and my card is ready to spread some happiness!

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop -Garden Meadow

Welcome to the final Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop for 2023. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a sketch challenge:

I had lots of fun playing with the sketch and combining old and new products.

The DSP is a sneak peek of the Nature’s Sweetness DSP which is in the January – April 2024 mini catalogue and will be available on the 4th January. The stamp set that I used is the online exclusive Garden Meadow.

I tried something different on the inside of the card and discovered that I really like the outcome. You are going to be seeing a lot more of the inside if my cards looking like this next year

Let’s Craft Together – November Sketch Challenge

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Let’s Craft Together blog hop. We are a group of
multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting. Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a sketch challenge that was set by Annette McMillan. This is the sketch:

I am working on Christmas cards, so I used the sketch for another one.

I used the Cottage Wreaths stamp set, Country Wreaths dies and Merriest Trees bundle. I heat embossed the baubles and sentiment with gold embossing powder. The presents were die cut and stuck along the bottom.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Country Wreaths

Welcome to the June 2023 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational image and colour challenge. This month we have a different type of challenge – the colour challenge is to use any of the current In Colors. The image is a sketch challenge:

I chose to use the new In Colors, and Copper Clay. Boho Blue and moody Mauve made it into my card.

I wanted the wreath to be a bit bigger than the die cut, so I cut 3 of them. 2 were cut in half and stuck behind the full one to make it bigger. This is one of those very rare cards that has no stamping. I cut another half a wreath and stuck it inside the card.

Crafty Challenge Blog Hop – Inked & Tiled

Welcome to another crafty challenge blog hop. This time, we have a sketch challenge. This is the sketch that we re working with:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I used the Scalloped Contours dies to cut the edge of the card front, incorporating the sketch into the card design.
